    Pakistan selectors to name Champions Trophy probables on Friday

    Pakistan\'s national selection committee will meet to name the probables for the ICC Champions Trophy to be held in England in June.

    Lahore: Pakistan's national selection committee will meet here on Friday to name the probables for the ICC Champions Trophy to be held in England in June.

    "The chief selector, Iqbal Qasim, has been told by the Pakistan Cricket Board to hold a meeting of its selection committee to name the probables for the Champions Trophy. The participating nations will have to submit a preliminary list of 30 players by April 4 and then the final squad of 15 by May 4," a source said.

    The selectors will also examine the reasons behind Pakistan's disappointing tour of South Africa, where they lost both the Test and ODI series.

    "The meeting which is to be held on Friday could also see serious discussions on the future of some senior players. The selectors are ready to make wholesome changes for the Champions Trophy but some players Younis Khan, Shahid Afridi and Umar Gul are likely to be retained for the tournament," he added
